I got up this morning really excited about starting this DIY project!
I washed, dry and thinly slice about five lemons, peel and slice a few garlic cloves and a good chunk of ginger root. Next, I washed and dried several jars…
I placed the ingredients in the jars, not too tight though, leave enough room for the honey to fill in between the lemon slices. Then I poured the honey slowly and carefully over the slices, closed the jars and placed them in the back of my refrigerator. OMG…They all looked so pretty I want to make more! I made five jars…so far!
So I’ll wait patiently till the end of November (3 months from today…)
before I open them again and taste the finished product…So, that will be My DIY “Lemon/Garlic and Ginger-Infused Honey” PT2. Stay tuned ;-)!!!
I came across this recipe for a lemon and honey delight on the internet a few days ago. http://catherineboley.blogspot.com/2009/08/preparing-for-winter.html This photo shows a lemon and honey blend. I love to use ginger so, I plan to add some (and maybe some garlic) to my recipe. As the summer slowly fizzles, I can feel a connection to the subtle shifting of the season. I also feel an inner desire to plan a few DIY projects for Fall…So I’ll start with this one. Today I picked up some 8oz Ball mason jars from Target. I already had some lemons, garlic, ginger and a few jars of honey on my pantry shelf. I can’t wait to experience this tasty looking mixture after it sits for a few days. In a few months from now it should become somewhat jelly-like and really potent…I’ll be sure to post my own photos and let you know how it turns out…I already know it’s going to be a delicious treat!
It’s about six days away and I’m doing all of the final prep work to make this an awesome, informative, fun event. They’ll be prizes, gift bags, refreshments, Q&A and lots of positive sharing on the topic of…natural hair and holistic health
My new ‘Ancient Blends Healthy Hair Herbal Tea Drink’ is for DRINKING!!! I do have another product called Ancient Blends Herbal Hair Tea Rinse (which is a topical deep treatment for hair). For years, many people have asked me if this combination was okay to consume internally. I personally felt that due to the amount of herbs in that blend…sixteen different herbs, it was really too much to drink on a regular basis. So, I’ve blended a smaller combination that can be consumed safely and also daily for the benefit of growing healthier hair. This is a natural, caffeine-free drink. You can drink it hot or cold. It’s also organic and contains all of the essential minerals and vitamins for promoting healthier hair. This tea works from the inside (where healthy hair originates) to assist in promoting hair and scalp healing…it’s also a nice alternative if you have a hard time swallowing vitamin capsules, I know a lot of people do.This all natural hair growth combo is also a delicious tasting way to care for your natural hair as well as definitely benefiting your body! Ancient Blends Healthy Hair Herbal Tea Drink is an all natural hair growth blend of certified organic Burdock Root, Peppermint Leaves, Nettle leaves, Shavegrass Leaves and Rosemary Leaves. These hair nourishing herbs were hand-blended. They are rich in calcium, biotin, silica, chlorophyll, copper, zinc, vitamins A, B, C and E, potassium and iron. This hair growth recipe works by purifying the blood stream to boost circulation which will then promote healthy hair growth. As a herbalist, I do recommend drinking loose teas whenever possible instead of pre-packaged tea bags. This allows the water to thoroughly extract the healing properties from the herbs without the hindrance of a filtered tea bag. I also recommend that you drink at least three cups of this blend per day to benefit from it’s healing and nurturing qualities. DO NOT ADD SWEETENER…Simply sit back and enjoy ‘the experience.’
